Arsenal join Newcastle in race for Besiktas winger Gokhan Tore

Arsenal have emerged as new potential suitors for former Chelsea winger Gokhan Tore.


Tore is currently playing in Turkey with Super Lig side Besiktas having not made the grade at Stamford Bridge.

The 23-year-old has been impressive since arriving in Turkey and this season has helped his side to the top of the league with five assists and one goal.

Reports in Turkey suggest that Besiktas will try to keep hold of the Turkey international until the summer, but The Express claims that Arsene Wenger may well attempt top swoop for Tore in January.

If Wenger is to seal a deal for Tore, he will have to fend off interest from Newcastle United, who are also said to be on the verge of making an official offer.
